How to get seeds?
The best way to get seeds is from a friend who has grown a type of plant that you enjoyed smoking. This, by far, is the best way because (1) You get the seeds for free, and (2) you know what the high type will be because you have already tasted it.
Choosing a seed-bank
As a rule, if you find a classy seed bank then you will find classy breeders using that seed bank to sell their seeds. If you find a seed bank, then the first thing you should do is to examine what people have to say about that seed bank.
If you are negative on any of these points above, then I suggest that you resolve those issues before you move on. The next thing I am going to tell you is the most important thing you will ever hear when growing marijuana. People have lived their whole lives growing cannabis and have never had an encounter with the law. It is so simple, but very hard to do. If you can do it then you are halfway to being an expert grower.
Never tell anyone that you are growing cannabis!!!
If you do this, then you will never have a problem other than someone accidentally walking into your grow area. If you can do this, then you will have more security than a castle equipped with guard-dog’s henchmen and the works. Loose lips cause 99.9% of all security-related issues to be breached. 00.1% is caused because you did not take the time out to conceal your area well enough. Loose lips sink ships.
This is the initial stage of growth and occurs when your seed’s embryo cracks open and the seedling produces a root. This root fixes itself into the soil and pushes the newborn seeding up and over the soil surface. Following surface contact two embryonic leaves open outwards to receive sunlight, pushing the empty seed shell away from the seedling. It takes anywhere between 12 hours to 3 weeks for seeds to germinate. Once the plant has reached this stage it goes into the seedling stage.
After the first pair of embryonic leaves are receiving light, the plant will begin to produce another small set of new leaves. These leaves are different from the last and may have some Marijuana characteristics such as the three rounded finger-shaped points. As the seedling grows more of these leaves are formed and bush upwards along with a stem.
The plants now begin to grow at the rate at which their leaves can produce energy.
It will continue to grow upwards producing new leaves as it moves along. It will also produce a thicker stem with thicker branches and with more fingers on the leaves. It will eventually start to show its sex. When it does this it is time for the plant’s pre-flowering stage. It can take anywhere between 1 and 5 months for the plant to hit this next stage.
During this stage, the plant continues to fill out. The plant will show its sex clearly. The male plant produces little balls that are clustered together like grapes. The female plant produces little white/cream pistils that look like hairs in a pod. Each of the plants will continue to fill out more and their flowers will continue to grow.
The hairs on the buds begin to get thicker and cluster into balls. The reason for the high increase in bud growth is that the female plant is trying its best to attract male pollen. Towards the last days of flowering, the pistils will change color showing that the plant is ready for harvest.
